Posted 14 January 2009 - 10:06 AM

the top 3 or 4 Google or MSN (I am guessing any) search results are redirected to ad pages, usually briefly going to a specific IP address beginning with 216. or 78, and the first time I use a new search engine is says "Testing" briefly before it goes to the redirected page. I have run complete scans with MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, CureIt, and also run SDFix, and our antivirus program Sophos, and the problem remains. Each of these scans has found different items and supposedly cleaned them out. I am sending you this as a last hope before I blow the thing away and reinstall. I can attach the logs from the other scans if you wish as well. In searching it seems this might be go.google search virus or some virtumonde variant, but I am unsure what I am actually battling at this point since so many things have come up in the scans. Thanks. Sue
Here is the DDS.txt log, and the Attach.txt file is attached:

I have not heard from anyone, but thought I would let you know that I have cured this computer. Sophos Anti-Rootkit tool identified the file c:\program files\common files\system\vmp_ln32.dll
It was hidden from Windows API, but I was able to navigate to this file using Safe Mode with Command Prompt and delete it.
